open a command prompt and type:

powercfg -h off


then press enter.

That will get rid of your hibernation file

Hopefully that will release enough space to use program to find out what is hogging your windows partition.

Yes, After you press enter, the prompt comes back. That is normal. if you had a hibernation file, it should be gone. hibernation files can be 2 gb or more.

Check and see if you have any more space on your drive.

1.67 gb free now, but far from 203. I ran everything all of you have suggested. What else can I do now? I appreciate your help

You should now have enough space to run a little program which will tell what is hogging your drive.

I use Glaryutilities it has a lot of functions, including disk space analysis. The free version will be fine for this

Glary Utilities is perfect for these sort of tasks. I have used it for years. I usually do a weekly cleanup which includes running Glary Utilities & CCleaner [both WITHOUT the registry cleaner]!
